When my TC4 isn't racing at SoCal RC Raceway its usually drifting in some parking lot. Some friends and I were joking about an RC D1 Grand Prix.

hmmm...how about

TiPS

1. Use ABS rings from ebay with tape on wheels for extra snug fit.
2. Set camber to zero all corners.
3. Tighten rear diff.
4. Enjoy.

oh ya its not really good to have all zero camber but its ok to have CLOSE to zero

the reason for that is beacuse if your drifting especially abs or pvc and have zero camber then your car will not be able to drift as long as a car with negative camber also beacuse of side wall hitting the ground (bumpes, rocks, and cracks in the floor)

but now your thinking the pvc or abs wears out to the floor so that the WHOLE tire is touching the floor... but you also have to think about chassis role,shock and spring compression and also rebound

not to be mean but just telling you what i know from my experience
